The kids in Ms. Brandt’s class create a special report on the United States of America, with each child doing research on ten states. There’s a double-spread map of the whole U.S. and a page for every state jam-packed with trivia, interesting facts, handwritten captions, and jokes. At the end of the book is a map showing how the United States grew over time, a spread on the presidents and what states they hailed from, as well as a “bibliography” of books the kids used in their research. Written by a team of well-known author/artists, this 64-page Smart About History book is a great guide for kids.
